non uniform scale in Cura is problematic

Non uniform scale in Cura is problematic the second time you try to change a scale number.

It's been for as long as I've been using Cura, which is several versions. Is this supposed to be a feature instead? I don't get it.

    Still having issues with this in the latest version: https://webm.red/0fA4


    It seems to stem from how Cura only transforms along the world axes, which does not work well with things that have been rotated. This becomes especially problematic when trying to adjust a support blocker after rotating the parent object. The handles may no longer correspond to the axis being scaled, and often a skew will be introduced.


    Is there no option to have the scale/rotation handles orient themselves relative to an object's rotation? If not, is this feature planned at all?


    I'm new to 3d printing and Cura is the first slicer I've tried using. I've made several successful prints, but this rotation/scale issue is causing mounting frustration

    I was having truble with resizing and rotation. I scaled down to 98% the rotated flat and some parts of print are still printing 100% causing the printer to crash into part and shutdown.  The only way I found after leveling and adjusting the z stop checking belts was to file/sand the high spot while printing or pausing print. Any pointers on how to fix. It was an onshape stl import to cura 4.8

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
